The 280mm closed-loop all-in-one liquid cooling selection is about to grow by one: The Cooler Master (RL-N28L-20PK-R1) Nepton 280L.  Sporting new dual 140mm JetFlo fans with POM bearings and a new pump design with LED, the 280L is Cooler Master’s answer to the Kraken X60 and H110.  Will an all-new pump, high-flow fans and a 280mm radiator be enough to take on the competition?  Benchmark Reviews will find out if the Nepton 280L can handle an overclocked FX platform and see how it stacks up against the competition.

Cooler Master also sent along two of their new 120mm JetFlo fans (140mm JetFlo fans are included with the Nepton 280L) containing their new POM bearings, most recently tested by Benchmark Reviews with the Cooler Master V8 GTS.  We’ll take a closer look at what makes these fans different and test them on the Nepton 280L as well.
